We were part of the Caravan Tours group that stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Our Accommodations were wonderful. Everything about this resort is just so beautiful. Very scenic. Our room was gorgeous. Our room #400 was on the 4th floor (top floor) just off the lobby. We had no problem of musty smell. The room had a very... More

Upon arrival at the resort one is struck by the beauty of the lobby and view through the trees of the Chagres River. The Resort setting is lovely. I spent two nights at this hotel in March during the dry season. The smell of mold was so intense it nearly knocked me over when I opened the door to the... More

Really like this resort. When I first got there the resort had no lights on( earth day). But after that everything was great. The people there are really nice and are there to help you. It is in a middle of the Rain Forrest there are things to do but if you don't want to do anything you can. Birds... More

Gamboa Rainforest Resort is in all the books, which is why we decided to book there, especially since it is in the rainforest close to Panama City. The good news was that the large resort - which looked rather Disney-like on the web site - was manageable and comfortable. The service staff were very helpful, the rooms were large and... More

We stayed here unfortunately for only one night post cruise. The grounds and view from our balcony were beautiful and the buffet dinner was very good at their restaurant ($25/person for the full buffet). We had toured Gatun Lake and saw many monkeys, a crocodile, a walking lizard and lots of birds. The room was very clean and comfortable and... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days before heading to Island Bastimentos. Our room was huge and showed no signs of disrepair. The view of the grounds and river were beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised at the fantastic food choices, given some of the earlier postings. The staff was extremely flexible. If you wanted the a la carte... More

We were an independent group of 6 adults who were finishing our Panama Visit at Gamboa. This place has a lot of tour groups and less of the eco-tourist. We are more of the nature-lover eco-tourist. The resort itself was just beautiful, and the setting, on the banks of the Chagres river, and inside the Soberania national park/ rain forest,... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for two nights as part of an escorted tour package. I can't really comment on "value" since the price of the room was part of the overall package. Our room was clean, comfortable, and had a good view of the Chagres River. Meals were included in our package; and those were all... More

After a 6-hour expedition by tour boat through a partial transit of the Panama Canal (appreciate the historical value, but nothing compared to the Three Gorges Dam transit), finally arrived to Gamboa Resort only to have to wait at least 45 minutes for a room to be readied for us. Perhaps not the fault of the resort but the travel... More

If resort vacations are your thing this is the place to go in Gamboa on the Panama Canal. Actually located on the Charges river with views of the river from the rooms and restaurants. Lots of excursions to purchase however bring your wallet. If you expect to see a lot of wildlife It's not here. We did see a few... More
